No. 4: Paula Badosa
Roland Garros was a major turning point for the Spaniard a year ago. But down 3-6, 1-2 to Veronika Kudermetova, Badosa retired with an injury.
No. 5: Anett Kontaveit
The Estonian was short on confidence coming in, and it showed. Ajla Tomlajnovic knocked her out in the first round, 7-6 (5), 7-5.
No. 6: Ons Jabeur
Jabeur had the most 2022 clay-court wins of any WTA player entering Paris. Magda Linette was unfazed, sending the Madrid titlist packing on Day 1 with a 3-6, 7-6 (4), 7-5 win.
